Holiday Must See Movies

Movies are always fun to see, especially around the holidays. Kids are out of school, family and friends are home for the holidays and it just so happens that some great movies have just been released.

Based on the 1957 Dr. Seuss book How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Universal Studios has recently released the third screen adaptation, The Grinch. The Grinch is a movie the entire family will love.

Just released by Walt Disney Pictures on December 19, Mary Poppins Returns is the sequel to 1964 Mary Poppins. The film has already won 5 awards and has 32 nominations, including Golden Globe Best Picture.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms was released by Walt Disney Pictures on November 2nd. The film has not received the most favorable reviews, but has remained popular among tween girls.

Looking for a different type of movie experience?  On Sunday December 23 at the Palace Theatre there are two special holiday movie screenings. The Muppet Christmas Carol at 2:00 pm and White Christmas at 5:00 pm.

All of us at Family Realty hope your holidays are Merry and Bright!

Aaron Davis - Family Realty Featured Agent of the Week

Meet our Family Realty Agent of the Week - Aaron Davis

Here is what Aaron has to say:

" I’ve been an active licensed real estate agent in Kentucky since 2015. I prefer to use a data driven approach to helping my clients reach their highest potential when selling their property or in looking for their next place to call home.

I’m a person that loves to learn new things. I’m always listening to podcasts, reading books and articles and generally looking for ways to improve all areas of my life and career. Just like my approach to business, I like to apply a high level of discipline in my health and fitness. Crossfit has been something I’ve loved to do in order to stay strong and mobile. But the most important thing in my life has to be my family. My wife Rachael, and my four kids are the greatest blessings I have.

The role of an agent is to ensure the interest of their clients is always placed first, and I take this seriously by working very hard to negotiate through those key moments during your real estate transactions. As your agent, you have someone that consistently goes above and beyond for you."

Best Neighborhoods In Louisville for Christmas Lights

I am always amazed by how beautiful the neighborhoods in real estate Louisville look during the holidays. All the twinkle lights, holly, wreaths, inflatables, etc are such a joy to drive around and admire. As a kid that was one of my most favorite things to do. My folks would bundle us up in the car with blankets and hot chocolate and we would drive from neighborhood to neighborhood and place votes on which one was best. With so many choices, it is hard to narrow down who has THE BEST Christmas lights and decorations, but here are a few that we think do a pretty good job!

Lake Forest located in eastern Jefferson County has been a standout for many years. With a growing community of nearly 1700 homes, there are plenty of holiday sights to be seen.  Lake Forest is one of the larger subdivisions in Louisville and draws a large crowd since the majority of its population participates in holiday decorating.

Windemere Place is a small subdivision off Lowe Rd that some consider “the best place to see Christmas lights.” Nearly every house participates in the decorations and the HOA assists in lighting all the trees on the main entrance street. This neighborhood is a must see!

Over in the City of Norbourne Estates, these tree lined streets shine at night with their beautiful lights and decor. Rumor is there is even a couple of residents that dress as Mrs. Claus and Santa. They sit on their porch several nights during the holidays and take pictures with guests.

Owl Creek is another neighborhood on our top list of neighborhoods with the best holiday lights and decor. They even have a Christmas Light Contest. Not sure what the winner gets, but it encourages residents to participate in creating a beautiful scene for all to see.

After driving through these or any other neighborhoods if you are thinking of buying or selling then contact one of our agents today. Family Realty would love to help you find your dream home!

Christmas in Charlestown

Just across the river there is a small town in Indiana that is home to the largest animated light show in Southern Indiana. The City of Charlestown is just a short drive from real estate Louisville and only several miles from the East End Bridge. Christmas in Charlestown is a must on your Holiday to do list.

The light show plays on the town square from 6-11 pm each night. The beautiful light displays twinkle while Christmas songs ring out. After walking the town square, you can head on down to the Family Activities Park, where there is much more to see and do.

There is ice skating, mini golf, and a playground. After all that you can grab cookies and hot chocolate at the concession stand and take a ride on the Christmas Train Express. Enjoy more sights and sounds of Charlestown on this quick train trip.

Christmas in Charlestown is an excellent way to get in the holiday spirit. For more information on directions, dates and times, and activity prices visit http://cityofcharlestown.com/parks/annual-events/christmas-in-charlestown.
